Pesach will be right on schedule

In case yesterday's post about the petition to the Supreme Court to postpone Pesach by a month by forcing the Rabbanut to declare a leap year, to ease the burden on families already weighed down by partial lockdown due to COVID-19, threw you out of whack not knowing whether to clean and prepare for Pesach or not, you can get back to schedule now.

The Supreme Court heard the case to delay Pesach. They decided against.

According to the Supreme Court judges, they do not have the status of Sanhedrin and do not have the authority to make such a decision.

Justice Noam Solberg basically told Meshulami that he was reading the Rambam wrong and that you cannot just take the declaring of a leap year lightly. The authority was given to the Sanhedrin or an authorized beit din in Eretz Yisrael, and the Court will not overstep its bounds into the territory o the Sanhedrin.

Basically, it aint happening. Just in case you thought there was a chance.
